Steelers Injury Report: Ramon Foster Listed As Probable On Friday

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their final practice of the week and they will now get ready to travel Saturday for their Sunday game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

The Friday injury report is out and it still looks like Ramon Foster (pectoral) will be able to start Sunday after practicing fully for a third straight day. Foster, who is currently battling through a pectoral strain, told Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he must be careful to keep his hands inside against the Jets and not reach during his run blocking or pass protection. Foster is listed as probable on the injury report.

As of right now, we still do not know who will get the start at left tackle against the Jets. Kelvin Beachum, however, is listed as the starter on the depth chart and he is backed up by the newly acquired Levi Brown. Both players received work in practice this week at the left tackle spot and offensive coordinator Todd Haley did not rule out the possibility of both playing against the Jets.

Tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (finger) both practiced fully on Friday and are listed as probable. Miller was allowed to be limited on Thursday in an effort to save wear and tear on him.

Wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) is of course listed as out for the game after having surgery last week to repair his broken pinky finger. Wheaton will be replaced by wide receiver Derek Moye against the Jets.

    My hope is that we can play one set of five guys on our line so that we can see any cohesion that may develop over the course of the year.

    We’re going to have to use the draft and FA to fix what’s broken after seeing who’s capable of actually playing for us.

    This may be a blessing in disguise. Ramon will now have to be more self conscious of hand placement. When a lineman reaches, his body is not in the correct position. If he keeps his hands in front of him, this will force him to keep his body in front of his opponent.

    I want to see Todd Haley make the Jets’ defense play pick your poison in the redzone and goal to go by having not only Heath Miller but Derek Moye in as well. Two very tall targets with a depleted secondary. Ben would probably cream in his jockies having those tall options on the field together.

    Just imagine a world where Heath Miller, Derek Moye and Plaxico Burress are on the field together. It will likely never happen but Ben would be running for the hand lotion.

    Why in the world would both left tackles play in this game?

    Pretty bare injury report. Just the way I like it.
